Can get both brands of knifes as wedding gifts
global or mac?
ChefTalk.com Top Picks
The MACs are different. VG-1 or so. Very basic design. The better cutters. Largely overpriced. Get them if you can.
If you can, go feel and hold the handles of each.
Globals have a general handle design which has caused problems for some users.
MAC's have handle ergometrics which they have put a lot of effort into, and with few complaints on handling.
My bet is on MAC's, if only as the knives you will probably want to hold.
